How to ask questions like a pro


#1

This is what we’re here for: asking for help! Learning! Making better stuff in Hopscotch!

Here are some tips to help you write the clearest, most easily answered questions:

  • Be clear and specific. Make sure that you’re asking an exact question (“How do I make my character move left?”) rather than a generalized question (“How do I make my character move?”.
  • Show, don’t tell, whenever possible. Use screenshots to show the code you’re working with, and leave notes to explain what stuff means.
  • Format your question so it’s easy to read. Use numbers or bullets if you have more than one question. Impress the world with your impeccable grammar.

Heads up: The Forum is for talking about making stuff on Hopscotch. If your questions isn't about making stuff on Hopscotch or if it doesn’t meet our community guidelines (for example, it asks someone to follow you), it will be removed.

PS: Our friends at Socratic Org know what's up. Check out their tips for good questions.

Check if your question has already been answered

It's useful to check if your question has already been answered in another post so that it saves you time from writing a question, and saves other people time from repeating the same answer.

Search keywords that are related to your question topic. You can search posts by going to the search magnifying glass icon :mag: in the top right corner.


When you are posting a new topic to ask a question, you might see a little box pop up saying "Your topic is similar to...."

Inside the box, you can click similar topics to view them.

Be sure to open and check topics that look similar to yours in case your question is already answered :smiley:

My other hopscotch account was not working on the hopscotch forum so I made a new account. I have a few suggestions for an update for hopscotch. First, can you add a create your own custom sound. That would be helpful to program a song in a game. Second, I want a draw or choose a picture from your camera role instead of putting emojis and programing them to shrink. Third, it would be nice if you add a way to see all the hopscotchers that are following you. I saw a lot of hopscotchers ask to add that feature in their projects. That is it for the suggestions.
